People normally take the time to document their medical wishes at the end of life, but there are mental, emotional, and spiritual decisions that aren’t recorded in standard advanced directives. As end of life doulas, we sometimes find clients at the end of life who are uncomfortable with no medical explanation. Part of our job is to uncover what is causing the discomfort. It can be a small detail such as an adult child is washing a parent and the parent never wanted that to occur. In addition to medical decisions, YANAEC gives people choices and voices on what would bring them maximum comfort until their last breath. No one is too young or too old for such planning. We encourage you and your loved ones to consider sitting down with YANAEC to create your plan.
